'Apple CEO Tim Cook Apologizes for Apple iOS6 Maps, Suggests You Download...Bing'

'Apple CEO Tim Cook Apologizes for Apple iOS6 Maps, Suggests You Download...Bing' | READ WHAT I READ | Scoop.it

Via Gizmodo:

 

Apple Maps is a mess, to the point that now Apple CEO Tim Cook has now issued a public apology for it. And—in a very un-Apple fashion—has directed iPhone users to alternatives like Bing, Waze, and, well, Google:

 

"At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

 

We launched Maps initially with the first version of iOS. As time progressed, we wanted to provide our customers with even better Maps including features such as turn-by-turn directions, voice integration, Flyover and vector-based maps. In order to do this, we had to create a new version of Maps from the ground up...

 

While we're improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app..."

Square Grouper: Florida beach-goers help collect bales of pot from capsized smuggling boat (VIDEO) | READ WHAT I READ | Scoop.it

FLAGLAR COUNTY, Fla. — Officials in Flagler County Beach are trying to solve a marijuana mystery after large packages were collected from an apparent drug smuggling boat on Monday.

 

There are still pounds of drugs washing up on the shore, but authorities said they don't know where it all came from.

 

Nearly 150 pounds of marijuana were on board the boat that capsized near Jacksonville earlier this month, and apparently floated south.

 

As the bricks of marijuana started washing ashore on Beverly Beach beachgoers dove into the choppy surf to help Florida Fish and Wildlife officers bring the drugs in.

 

Skywitness 9HD was over the scene near A1A on Monday afternoon...

A former Hialeah Gardens police detective who was found guilty of drug-related charges in May was sentenced to 151 months in prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Thursday.
